Civic Engagement Course
UNI 292: Civic Engagement for Pre-Health Students
Each spring, University College offers a civic engagement course for pre-health students. This course is designed to facilitate pre-health student community involvement. Students will gain a better understanding of specific health care issues or an issue relating to healthcare systems by volunteer, reflecting on experience, and making recommendations for further improvement or educating others. The course will provide pre-health students the opportunity to engage in meaningful service in the local community. Students will gain an understanding of the US Healthcare system and underlying issues related to health-care organizations.
Students must receive the instructor's permission to take this course. In order to qualify for admission to the course, students must hold at least a 3.0 GPA, must have earned a B or higher in BIO 201 or CHM 101, and must have earned an A- or higher in Freshman Seminar (if taken). Students who have participated in the PULSE Learning Community are not eligible for this opportunity.
